The Runaways of Haddington Hall
After a series of misfortunes, Minnie O'Sullivan is whisked away to Haddington Hall: a nightmarish home for wayward girls. Bad becomes worse when the hall's ruthless founder, Mrs Haddington, takes an instant dislike to brave, determined Minnie, and she's in danger of losing everything. But Minnie has never backed down from a fight in her life, and she's not about to start now! Irresistible characters and a compulsive plot with twists aplenty; Vivian French conjures up the very spirit of Dickensian England in a wonderful new novel for middle-grade readers.
